No takers for Olympian's silver

A Quebec-born Olympian who created a stir when she put her silver medal and skates up for sale on Kijiji a month ago admits no buyers have come forward.

Anouk Leblanc-Boucher won a silver and bronze at the 2006 Winter Games in Turin. She left speed skating afterward and only recently decided to mount a comeback.

She says she got both positive and negative feedback when she posted on Kijiji to raise some training money. She was asking for a million dollars for the silver medal.

Leblanc-Boucher says even though she has had no offers, the publicity has prompted a couple of sponsors to come forward and it is still her hope to skate in the 2018 Olympics in South Korea.
